Postcard from Lithuania no. 2
A postcard sent from Klaipeda, Lithuania, on 6 February 2009 and received 6 days later. It shows the famous Curonian Spit (in the municipality of Neringa, in the west of the country), a 98 km long, thin, curved sand-dune spit that separates the Curonian Lagoon from the Baltic Sea. The dune is a World Heritage site shared by Lithuania and Russia.
The single 2.15 lt stamp was issued on 27 June 2008 for the 2008 Beijing Olympics (print-run 300,000). Thank you, Anna.
